Publisher's Summary

The prequel to Barbara Taylor Bradford's New York Times best-selling and dazzling saga A Woman of Substance.

Opening five years before the start of A Woman of Substance, A Man of Honor begins with 13-year-old Blackie O’Neill facing an uncertain future in rural County Kerry. Orphaned and alone, he has just buried his sister, Bronagh, and must leave his home to set sail for England, in search of a better life with his mother’s brother in Leeds. There, he learns his trade as a navvy, amid the grand buildings and engineering triumphs of one of England’s most prosperous cities, and starts to dream of greater things.... And then, high on the Yorkshire moors, in the mists of a winter morning he meets a kitchen maid called Emma Harte.

In A Man of Honor, the true Blackie O'Neill is revealed. For the first time, audiences discover his story: his tumultuous life, the obstacles facing him, the desire he has to throw off the impotence of poverty and move up in the world. Like his friend Emma, he is ambitious, driven, disciplined, and determined to make it to the top. And like Emma Harte, he is an unforgettable character for the millions who loved the book.

Don’t waste your time

I thought this was one of the worse books I have listened to….I have liked her books but wow! couldn’t wait to finish, I would have returned but I kept hoping it would get better.

A lille disappointing

This book started out being the backstory for Blackie. About halfway through the book, it fell apart. This mess then became a storyline about three other characters who were really peripheral to Blackies story. Blackie should have been the prominent character, telling his story from beginning to the end of his life.
Instead, the book ended abruptly and left me fold
This book was not Barbera Taylor Bradford's finest book

a wonderful addition to the Harte saga

I loved it, and the focus on Blackie in this book. as usual, smooth story line and glad there were no tragic surprises.
